This week’s Water Cycle Episode goes out to the Yellow’s (2nd & 3rd graders) at Hilltown Cooperative Community Public School who are studying the water cycle.

We’ve found a few web sites exploring the water cycle that kids and educators might enjoy. Click here to share a water cycle web site/resource you’ve discovered:

  • Thirstin’s Water Cycle – Put out by the EPA; reviews rain, water storage, vapor and clouds through flash video for kids.
  • Droplet – NASA has put together a water cycle game for kids.
  • The Illinois EPA shows how to make a water cycle wheel for kids.
  • Enchanted Learning posted a water cycle diagram that can be used for curriculum planning.
  • The Water Education Foundation has a Water Kids page.
  • ProTeacher! offers water lesson plans that, including the topics of evaporation, water, water cycle and weather.
  • For teachers and homeschoolers, National Geographic has a water lesson plan.

And here’s a cute video for the younger crowd titled, The Cat Who Hated Rain, originally aired on Sesame Street, and animated by Bruce Cayard. A cat wishes the rain away and the consequenses of no rain are illustrated. Appropriate for all ages.
